Spring Leagues 2024 ~ League Information

Valley of the Sun Ultimate


About Ultimate and VOTS Leagues

Ultimate frisbee (or ultimate disc) is a high energy, non-contact team sport. It combines elements of many different sports including soccer, basketball, and football. Ultimate is played on a rectangular shaped field with end zones shaped like football end zones. Each team consists of seven players. The disc is passed from teammate to teammate until somebody catches the disc in the end zone for a score.

The Valley of the Sun Ultimate Association (VOTS) organizes adult leagues (18 and up, ages 16-17 with parental waiver) with two primary goals in mind:

  1. to introduce new players to the sport of Ultimate.
  2. to provide a place for all levels of players to play in a competitive, team-oriented atmosphere.

We play by USAU's current ruleset.

How is league structured?


Mixed Division

Open Division

Do I need to know how to play?

Absolutely not! We teach all new players basic throws as well as the rules and strategies of ultimate throughout the season. As a new player, you will be placed on a team with moderate to experienced players who will show you the ropes and teach you the game.

What do I need to play?

You will need to bring:

  1. Non-metal cleats (or tennis shoes if you don't have cleats).
  2. Water (you'll get thirsty).

Anything else?

As per General League Policies:

  1. VOTS discourages dogs at VOTS-sponsored leagues. If participants do bring dogs to VOTS-sponsored leagues, the owner must be aware of and abide by all applicable local leash laws.
  2. No glass is allowed on the fields.
  3. Under NO circumstances should anybody drive onto the fields.

Spring Leagues 2024 Registration

Do I need to have a team to sign up?

No. All players sign up as individuals and will be drafted on to a team within their appropriate division.

Can I play on the same team as my friends?

Woman-matching players new to the sport will be guaranteed to be placed on a team with another player they request!

We expect that most baggage requests (people requesting to play on the same team) can be accommodated. Every attempt will be made to fill baggage requests, including multiple requests, with priority to new players and woman-matching players.

What is the player cap and the wait list?

Initial player cap: 140 man-matching players, 80 woman-matching players. A wait list will be instituted *before* these caps are met to avoid over-filling the league.

How much does league cost?

Woman-Matching Players: $30
Woman-Matching Players new to ultimate: FREE!

Man-Matching Players, Mixed League: $45
Man-Matching Players, Open League: $20

Registration price differences for man-matching players reflects the historical demand for spots in these different divisions. Not all man-matching players can be accommodated in their preferred division.

Spring League will NOT include a shirt or discs.
